Wish we had an artist's concept of Soundwave's cybertronian alt mode

Besides that, love the art, and am I the only one getting WFC(the game) vibes from both Bee and Prime in vehicle mode? Both have alot of cues to that look for me ;)^

I still would be interested in hearing a rationalization why Cybertronian Optimus Prime has truck windows on his chest. Did Alpha Trion have a premonition that Optimus would eventually need to travel to another planet and blend in with the fleshling's delivery vehicles? Just because we didn't question 1980's cartoon logic doesn't mean I won't question 2019 movie logic. ILM designers have gotten criminally lazy since GL sold them off.

It's because Travis Knight wanted him to look like G1 Optimus.

These are gorgeous right here.

And they are proof to me that I really really REALLY wish these designs would have been the foundation of a new, different universe movie or TV series. They are so cool, but so at odds with the design from this universe that I really like that that dominates the rest of the movie.

Still love them though, just needed to be in a different place.

BTW, I now really want an "Into the Spiderverse" but using Transformers

We have a fun feature for you today. The Seibertron site got to meet the writer for Bumblebee, Christina Hodson, for an interview conducted by our very own Jon Bailey. There was more fun to be had as well:

Go with Jon Bailey (voices of Shockwave & Soundwave) to Paramount Studios to interview Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, create the sounds of Bumblenee with foley artists Dawn Lunsford and Alicia Stevenson & go under the hood of the actual VW Bumblebee car with mechanic Sarah Lyon! BUMBLEBEE IS OUT NOW ON DIGITAL, DVD, BLU-RAY & 4K ULTRA HD!
Special thanks to Paramount & Seibertron.com!





We hope you had fun with this as much as Jon did. Please remember that Bumblebee is out on Blu Ray today for all of you to enjoy!

Not the first time it’s happened. I still remember watching the SFX section of the first movie and of course the main animator that’s interviewed was someone who looks like a stereotypical transformers nerd. Over weight, glasses, transformers shirt and a desk that is engulfed in toys and what’s right in front of them all? Fansproject city commander.

Well it was a one day thing, and how do we know what was on the tape? It could have just been a Rick roll with Bee's face over Rick Astley ;)

They don't look specifically like truck windows to me.

Maybe you're interpreting the shapes that way because we know he eventually gains his truck alt mode.

Great work Jon! Also great work in Bumblebee! Your Shockwave and Soundwave were spot on! My friends really thought that was Corey Burton and Frank Welker! I said “no! That’s the guy who does the voice in Homest Trailers and he actually played Optimus Prime in a cartoon!” It blew their mind.
